Military Spouse Professional Development Program

Please join us for the “Keeping a Career on the Move®” Military Spouse Symposium presented by MOAA Military Family Initiative in partnership with Hiring Our Heroes' Military Spouse Program. This event is made possible through a grant from USAA. We are grateful for their support and generosity!

This event is free and open to all spouses of active duty, reserve, National Guard, retirees, veterans, and surviving military spouses. Servicemembers and veterans are welcome to attend.

Complimentary food, beverages, and giveaways are included.  

This is NOT just another hiring fair! MOAA knows military spouses don’t belong in the fine print of another military hiring event. This symposium is created solely for military spouses and focused on your unique needs and desires to keep a career on the move – whether that means keeping your career progression in motion or keeping a career intact from one PCS to the next. 

The MOAA Military Spouse Symposium “Keeping a Career on the Move®” is a one-day personal and professional development conference designed specifically for military spouses planning to enter or re-enter the workforce or taking the next step in their professional career. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to attend sessions focused on résumé writing, networking, best practices, success strategies for LinkedIn, and more.   

During the “Real Spouses, Real Stories” discussion, attendees will learn about fellow military spouses who have navigated a wide variety of industries and strategic volunteerism opportunities to keep their careers on the move while "married to the military." 

  • Connect with local and national resources to get your questions answered.
  • Engage and learn how to make an impression to stand out as a competitive candidate to companies.

To help you prepare for these exciting events:

  • Dress for success — FREE professional LinkedIn headshots will be taken.
  • Carry business cards with your name and contact information.
